Kindly do corrections for my COver letter.

Thanks in advance

With reference to the advertisement on website address for position for the topic of interest/ topic advertisement topic, I am writing in a hope that you might be able to offer me the same. I would be happy to join in your research group

I am a Bachelor in Biochemistry (1999-2002) from Periyar Univeristy and Masters in Biochemistry (2002-2004) from the University of Madras with a strong inclination towards research in Neurobiology. Having gained a strong theoretical background in Basics of neurobiology during my academic years, I would like to explore further by doing a doctoral program in your research wing.

A very good theoretical knowledge from my present job and practical experience gained in National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences, NIMHANS, Bangalore will help me pursue this doctoral degree. Being proficient in academics I am also a "people person" who mingles well with others. I have been an amicable person both in my academic and corporate environment.

1. Being proficient in academics I am also a "people person"(I haven't heard of this before) who mingles well with others

For the above sentence I am trying to say that I can easy going person with people of different culture. Can you suggest a similar sentence.
I just tried to find grammatical mistakes but I am not an expert on writing. I don't know the international letter format. It is better if someone else helps you. As for the people person it is better to say affable or easy-going.
1) Thanks for your time and consideration.
2) I will be looking forward to your reply.

3) is an extra
4) I am also a "people person"...


1) Thanks for your time and consideration. If you want an advice: drop it. I have seen it in a sample but I don't think it is very helpful.

2)I look forward to hearing from you. In my opinion this is the best ending and I use it all the time. I will be looking implicate you are not quite sure. This is not the appropriate tense, if you are sure. I see no need for 'will be looking'.

3) If you want a better ending insted of 'with a good..': I would welcome the unique opportunity to work as part of your successful team, to benefit from your extensive experience, and to put my training, experience, creativity and enthusiasm into practice for XYZ. Or something like that:-)

4) My social skills are excelent as well as my ability to understand foreign cultures and to adapt to them. Please drop people person, there are other ways to point at your social skills.

5) Sorry but the letter is extravagant and not in a good way. Maybe you should make it more formal and close to the letter they usually receive. Personaly, I don't like the structure. It should have the following structure:

a) Introducing: Why am I writing. 1-2 sentenses.
b) Main Letter: Why am I the wright person for the job/the scholarship. Very important: do not repeat your CV. Use the CV to show, what have you done and your advantages but do not simply repeat the CV. This is a very important distincion.
aa) My education, expirience etc.
bb) My skills.
c) Ending: 1-2 sentenses.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Hi,

I am a new member, was going through various notes posted and spotted yours, probbly this is too late, but you can say I am a peoples' person - who enjoys working with and for people or something like that

Hope you received a poitive responce for your letter
but you can say I am a peoples' person

Sorry, but I woudn't recommend a phrase, which could not be found within a dictionary like Longman, Dictonary of Contemporary English or Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary. Longman/Cambridge only refer a man/woman of the people.
As for me, 'I am a peoples' person' sounds like slang. Of course you can say that, but I have grave doubts, if one should write it in a formal litter like cover letter and hopes for some good results.
Dear Kathrin and Doll

Thank you very much for your valuable suggestions for my cover letter. I have reframed this cover letter as a formal letter than the previous one. Kindly check and suggest me if I am wrong.
Thank you so much!
